Patrice Jones hosted a Blog Carnival Against Vivisection.
If you don’t know what a blog carnival is, it’s when a group of bloggers decide to write about the same topic. One blogger, the host, collects the entries and publishes a summary. It could be said that blog carnivals are a form of web “community organizing.”
The reason for the carnival was:
“What we all have to do is develop an integrated analysis in which we understand how all of the problems are linked and then find ways to show solidarity with those working on different issues”
Specifically, we ought not be too focused on diet. Patrice would like an animal rights movement that spreads attention across the broad spectrum of animal issues, including lab animals and farm animals. Clearly, veganism includes refraining from products that involve animal testing, so why not write about that every once in a while?
Here are some of the participating blog entries:
- the zaftig vegan: “In Solidarity: My Thoughts Against Vivisection”
- Invisible Voices: “against vivisection: ethics and science”
- Animal Person: “On Seals, Veal and Vivisection,”
- Neva Vegan: Carnival Against Vivisection
- Eastern Shore Sanctuary blog: “Other Kinds of Bird Cages”
- Animal Writings: horrifying nicotine experiments
- Primate Freedom: “vivisectionists’ disease“
- SuperWeed: vivisection of all kinds
If you’d like to blog against vivisection, it’s not too late. Just go ahead and blog. As Patrice said, “Let’s not let it stop with today. Let’s keep vivisection in mind, even when we are working on other issues.”
If you blog about it, please leave a comment below with the link to your article (as well as a comment at SuperWeed) so that others can read your thoughts.
